I had a bit of a quacking time!

I made a few cards last night whilst Freddie spent a few hours in the local pub.  A couple of hours he said! about 2.15 a.m he decides to roll in.  Well, I say roll in. It was more like a bit of a wobble and a shuffle! LOL!  The only time I was slightly worried was when he started swaying precariously at the top of the stairs and I was standing behind him.  Not wanting to be flatterned if he fell backwards, I gave him a quick shove in the direction of the bedroom and left him to it.  You can tell I am all heart!  LOL!  Anyway, continuing with crafting, these are the cards I made last night/early hours of this morning.





The bottom two I have made for my neice Fliss who is expecting her second baby any time now.   I thought one of these would make a nice alternative baby card.

Stamps used: Crafty Individuals.

Best Wishes Florence.

      Hi Paula. Thank you for stopping by, for your lovely comments and kind words. It is a lovely stamp to use. I did wonder when I bought it because it has a sort of negative image but I am really pleased with it. We have no alarm clock but I have been making a lot of noise! LOL!
      Regards Florence x

    How about getting your wood turner out today 😉 Love the cards, I used to (for some inexplicable reason) get given loads of stuff with ducks on when I was younger, so I have a soft spot for anything “ducky”. Take it you don´t know if Fliss is expecting a niño or a niña?!


    1. florence and freddie

      Hi Chica. Thank you for stopping by. Always lovely to hear from you. The beast is out now for the summer until it rains end sept/oct. Funny you should say that about the ducks. I was given loads of ducks in the ’80’s. It is probably why I like this stamp. Fliss knows but she hasn’t told anyone. Which is quite nice because we all get a surprise. Or maybe they are just not telling me!! LOL!

    What beautiful, beautiful cards. I have to say that your elephant card is by far the best creation I have seen using this stamp. The ruffle is a gorgeous addition.

    Poor Freddie you meanie pushing up the stairs at least he won’t remember it lol. Gorgeous cards and looks like he was out long enough for your creativity to run wild. How different the stamping looks using different colours and fabrics as always your work is sublime.
